Reworking The Firewall

Just grabbed a ball peen hammer and started reworking it to make room for the tall valve covers, room to remove them easily....

I had chalked where I wanted to rework it the last time the motor was in, so now let's see what I can do, I'm no way a sheet metal man, am just doing what seems obvious and seems to work....
The driver's side reshaped pretty easily, still a bit more to do before I'm happy with it, but it's pretty close, now to do the passenger's side
The passenger's side had some reinforcement on the inside, it's more
difficult to rework, probably should have removed that inside piece, but thought I'd give it a go. May have to haul out the torch and use some heat to soften it up....
This got sidelined by some other priorities, but I'll get back to it soon....
